thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis

home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, peter, thank you so much. >>> here at home the senate passed its first budget in four years, this during an all-night session. the nonbinding blueprint passed by a near party line vote. before its passage the senate spent several hours taking up dozens of amendments. >> average voteorama, 35 amendments. we've done 70, twice as many. doing this has been a herculean feat. >> i know everyone is exhausted and you may not feel it at the moment, but this is one of the senate's finest days in recent years and i commend everyone who has participated in this extraordinary debate. >> some of the amendments had nothing to do with the bu
opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context, because we think our experience shows when we leave it, but we are also working with others -- when we lead, but we are a

secretary kerry was going to raise it. >> on friday, a federal judge in california to declare the letters unconstitutional. do you have any comment on the fbi's use of national security letters and your use of them as a tool. >> they are a critical tool establishing a predicate -- they are essential tools in terms of establishing a predicate. without them, we would be working with one hand tied behind our backs. it has been addressed elsewhere. i know she has stayed the ruling so that an appeal can be taken. second circuit address the same the actionsund that to the way we're operating under that particular statute it via the constitutional -- in-line my expectation is it is addressed. either on appeal or by new legislation. it is an essential tool. >> how essential -- what would be the circumstances if the ruling were upheld? >> it would dry up a number of our counter terrorist investigations. it would drive up our ability to get at intermission and severely undertake those counterterrorism investigations. also in the cyber arena, if we impact our ability in the arena as well. >> the all
but they allowed to consider kerry in many places is much easier than united states. a taxpayer have all occurred in very few places where guns are banned. they seem to seek out places within the dems can't defend themselves. the way to think about this is these people are committing suicides. you read their statement, look at the videotapes. they want to do so in a way that people will know who they are. the chilling to is they say explicitly that i could only kill more people than such a such attacks did, the killer was apparently comparing himself to the region killer and parent of the reason he picked the school with these young kids as he thought he could kill a lot of people without being stopped. so they think they can get by media coverage by going and killing the people in the array. nobody's out here saying we should get rid of the first amendment orban media outlet from going into the news coverage of these killers are being prevented from mentioning their names. an hour after his attack, even though i believe strongly that would stop or take away the benefit, but instead people instan
kerry intends to spend significant time, effort and energy in trying to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we can not give up on the search for peace. too much is at stake. and if we're gonna succeed, part of what we're going to have to do is to get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides are going to have to think anew. those of us in the united states are going to have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive at our destination to advance the vision of two nations, two neighbors, at peace, israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing that i'm very certain of is that the palestinians have the talent, the drive, and the courage to succeed in their own state. i think of the villages that hold peaceful protests because they understand the moral force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i think of the entrepreneurs determined to create something new, like the young palestinian woman i met at the entrepreneurship summit that i hosted who wants to build r
at senator kerry's trip every day on that trip you saw him in a sense evolving in terms what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at, and a fresh look what can be done. and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good, thank you. david. >> thank you everyone. good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday. i must say i'm, well, dennis and i often have our own convergences. i might be a little less upbeat having returned from there. it could be a question how these things are put forward but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i mean i can not see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip because it's really two trips in one at least to israel. the public part, it is israel you would be hard-pressed to find a ford minivan's worth of israelis that who are anti-american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences have been with obama and they have been recorded in polls, for the most part every stop along the
%. john kerry also won 60% more votes than al gore had won four years before -- had won at 6% 6% morees -- had won votes. there was a huge increase in turnout. in this election, barack obama received 3.5 million fewer votes than he received four years before. a 5% decrease in votes. mitt romney received about 1 million more votes than john mccain. said andmmonly reported that he received fewer popular votes than mccain, and that is because of the delay of california and some of the other west coast states in reporting their numbers, but when they finally came in, he did. obama clearly benefited from a superior micro targeting and turnout effort, building on what the bush campaign had done in 2004 and then the substantial advances the obama campaign made in 2008 and working through a four-year period. they used consumer preferences and things of that nature to identify strong and unwavering obama voters, and then they used personal contact with a message. towards the voter propensities. geared towardsge the voters' propensities. you can see the results in the 12 target states, most of wh
